F is for Feta Guacamole

One of my favorite things to make is Guacamole.

Avocados are delicious in any form in my opinion… but they are especially delicious in guacamole. I have a sort of “standard” way I like to make guacamole and I thought… hey, why not add a little feta right into the guacamole?? I couldn’t imagine it being bad and it turned out wonderful! Just a fun way to mix things up a bit… especially if you want to put a greek twist on your guacamole! You could even serve it with pita chips instead of tortilla chips if you wanted to go Greek all the way!
